If you like this, I recommend Spring Moon
on 12 January 2015
I found this an edifying read. Of course the research cannot be faulted but, for me, the central character never came truly alive. I felt that the author was documenting her life in a dispassionate narrative. It's an enjoyable book but I would recommend Spring Moon by Bette Bao Lord is a more enjoyable read.
